    pg and giannis firmly first team. durant and lebron are firmly second team.

    i don't think it's a debate at this point in the year unless i'm forgetting someone. the former two have just been ovewhelming.

    Why even sign him in the first place? That front office makes some questionable choices

    He’s considered for sure but Giannis is a lock and PG has been averaging 28 a game while being the best defender in the league he deserves it

    It’s G-G-F-F-C but Zach Lowe makes it seem the nba is pretty open on how you decide what a guy plays although I’m guessing you can’t get away with PG, Giannis and KD on your 1st team ballot.

    Why would Magic say this now if no one has signed off yet? Especially with all the Klutch issues that already exist with the rest of the league?

    huge PG fan. if he had signed with the lakers they’d probably be the 3 seed right now at worst, but for some reason he wanted to stay in oklahoma

    Yea if he really cared about beating the warriors he would have went to philly. This sixers team + Lebron instead of butler has a chance imo

    Dame with a nice little 3rd quarter versus Dallas: 8/10 shooting (5/6 from 3) for 21 points.

    Kuzma might get 50 today.

    I'm not sure I would have this dude on the trading block if I were Magic.

    doesn’t matter. still under contract two more years and then philly will match whatever offer sheet when he’s a rfa. what’s he gonna do? play with lebron when lebron is washed?

    Even if Magic “tampers” Simmons is under contract for 2 more years after this. I doubt Philly takes a bunch of role players for Simmons anymore than the NOLA did for AD.

    Whether Lebron is there or not the Lakers will draw interest from FA's. The Sixers have a legit fear that he bounces for LA the second he has the ability to do so.

    Dude wants to be in LA and live that lifestyle more than play with Lebron.
